Despite enormous medical advances, too many Americans still die alone or in pain. Too many endure costly and ineffective treatments. Too many come to hospice too late, or not at all. 80 percent of Americans say they would prefer to live out the remainder of their lives at home, but fewer than 25 percent do. However, of those with hospice care, 75 percent are able to finish their life's journey at home.
Tabitha Hospice is the gold standard for quality, compassionate, end-of-life care. A team approach combining expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support, hospice care allows each individual to spend his or her final months to the fullestâ€”with dignity and choice.
Established in 1979, Tabitha Hospice was a pioneer in hospice care and today is the longest-running hospice program in Nebraska. For decades we have gained the trust of local families and health care providers.
Like all of Tabitha's Elder care services, Tabitha Hospice is motivated by Christian compassion, not economic gain. We are a not-for-profit hospice care provider....
Also Guernsey, a tiny self-governing island Crown "dependency" of Britain, with its subsidiary islands of Alderney and Sark, which has its own sterling currency of notes and coins at par with the British currency, its own Parliament and government, alongside another island, Jersey that also has its own separate sterling currency, Parliament and government, and located just off the coast of North France, is sadly only reflecting much of the liberalism and secularism of the British mainland.
Sadly, this cannot be overruled by the British Parliament in London, but only by a special royal council called the Privy Council, that though nominally headed by the Queen, is actually stuffed with politicians, many of them of a left wing hue, who will no doubt let the measure pass.
This will indeed reflect on the mainland, as the unelected judges of the US style Supreme Court that we now have here, which replaced the House of Lords Judicial Committee some time ago are very likely to point to this as a valuable precedent, to push through this type of law here, or override a contrary vote in our Parliament for the mainland.
Indeed, it is true that we are not to put our trust in princes, as stated in the Psalms. I do believe the failed "Moral Majority" movement in the States fell down on that one, trusting in flawed Right Wing politicians instead of in the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Holy Scriptures.
We are primarily to preach the Gospel, and lives will be transformed through that.
However, that does not mean that when an evil government that we are still able to elect starts passing evil laws that we are to sit down passively and just let it happen.
That is what happened in Britain in 1967, when leading evangelicals opposed any political action at all, and the Abortion Act here passed through a half empty House of Commons, I think on a Friday evening, or something like that, and we have been living with its consequences ever since.
Now other evil things have got through, but only under great protest, and some things have been thankfully thrown out, because many leading evangelicals are highly alert, and well we need to be.
SA picked a good article, and it has a link to another good article on the topic also.
John MacArthur wrote: You're trying to achieve something through the legal system or through the court system, or through lobbying, or through media intimidation and in order to get your power up to a level where you can make a dent in the society, you embrace people who agree on the issue. You get it with other people who are anti-abortion, anti-homosexual, [ Âˇ ] anti-euthanasia, [ ! ] who are against pornography and you get all together and you're going to accomplish this with these co-belligerents and something immediately happens, and that is this, the gospel is eclipsed because if you proclaim the gospel in that environment, you'd blow up your organization you spent so much time and money to bring together. The gospel then would become destructive.
So that leads to number ten, this effort at cultural morality leads to acceptance of inclusivism. And what I mean by that is, it starts to stretch the boundaries of the Kingdom of God to embrace these people who are not in Christ....
